Some parts of U.S. history may be eliminated from text books

(KMOV) -- What if your child's school no longer taught kids about the Great Depression and the U.S. Constitution?
             
It is possible that some text books may no longer include those lessons.
             
There is a vote on Friday in Texas that could change the content of textbooks for the next ten years.          
 
This is important to kids everywhere because Texas school books are used in 90-percent of schools.
 
Some of the subjects the board wants to eliminate from history books include the Constitution, Independence Day, Abraham Lincoln and the Great Depression.  
 
The country's governors and top educators are proposing that all schools use the same math and English standards and take the same tests.
 
The goal is to get students to perform better in school.
 
Parents can read and comment on the proposal until April 2nd by clicking the link included in this article.
